today's reading.
Philippians 3:7    But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ...

think about it.
Paul had great credentials but how does he view them (3:7-9)? Where does righteousness come from (3:9)? What is Paul's goal (3:10) and what is he doing to get there (3:12-14)? What is the reward? How far would you go to "know Christ"?

the blog.
I love the Lord and I think I'm pretty passionate about having a relationship with Him. But after reading and considering how Paul talks about and describes his relationship with the Lord, and how he's continually working at knowing Him more...well, let's just say, there's room for improvement. Paul is absolutely sold out, on fire, passionate--you choose the word--about pursuing Christ, knowing Him better and becoming more like Him. (Paul...I want to be like you!)

So on a scale of 1-10 (Paul being a 9.5 because, remember, he told us he wasn't perfect) where are you when it comes to being passionate abut knowing Christ? How did you get there? And how can you improve your number? Tami W.

P.S. In case you're wondering where I landed on the scale... Well, I'm thinking a 6.5 to a 7. So I have plenty of opportunity to keep growing and moving forward--an opportunity I'm eager to work on!
